Kris Aquino can’t have politician BF as specified in endorsement contracts
Queen of All Media Kris Aquino is undeniably among the top endorsers in the country. Thanks to her incredible consumer impact, she has nailed numerous endorsement deals left and right.
Unfortunately, even with her enormous wealth, she still can’t have everything. At the very least, she can’t have a politician boyfriend as simply stated in her contracts.
“If I can be honest, several contracts have provision na if you end up with an elected official, may penalty, from the multinationals – because of the money trail,” she said Saturday, Jan. 27, at the press conference for Ever Bilena, the latest product she is endorsing. “It will appear that they are paying somebody in elective office.”
It was not too long ago when news of her romantic relationship with Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista hit the headlines.
In one of her online episodes, she was quoted to have said: “My favorite ex is the one who gives all the permits in Quezon City.”
She noted her situation was different when her brother, former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino, was still in office.
“Magkapatid kami pero we shared nothing,” she said. “Pero ito if we [referring to Bautista] end up together, or even if I announce, let’s say if, managarap na tayo, engaged, sauli, at hindi lang sauli, sauli ng pera ko na binayad sa akin, sauli ng production cost, and may penalty clause pa dun sa mawawala sa kanila.”
“It’s very expensive na maging kami,” she declared.
But should she ever consider to sacrifice money over love, she already made calculations of what would be the total cost of following her heart.
“Right now, ang dami na who are working for me,” she said. “Paano na pong magyayari sa ’min? Jobless na po kaming lahat? And then kinalculate ko kung magkano ang kailangang bayaran. Yes, may computation ako. Production cost eh, ako, tapos lost airtime because they buy it for the year. Pati yun, so oh my God, ilang Chowking ang ibebenta ko para mabayaran ‘yung penalty. Kaya that’s why let’s just be friends.”
Being known for her addiction to make-up, Kris has just been launched as the new face of cosmetic company, Ever Bilena. Besides her current endorsements, she also has movies lined up. /atm
